Another disappointing brew from the Leffe guys. Maybe it's their best, but overall it is again lacking something that would make me happy.

L: dark golden look, with nice lasting top, with fine bubbles.
S: the Leffe-yeast is very mentionable, malty but milder than the regular Leffe blond.
T: difficult to say, malt with a touch of citrus;
M: round, alcohol feels too strong, though it's only 7,5%, overall a bit disharmonic;
O: this seems the best Leffe can, and it's quite okay, but I find it still a bit too poor

This beer has a golden color with an orange hue. The body has a good bit of carbonation to the body that leads to the ivory head. There is a decent lace. It has a great crisp smell with a hoppy finish but mainly clove, yeast and malt dominate. This beer had a nice hop presence but was not as strong as I thought. I like the citrus flavor mixed with spice. It has a medium feel.

33 cl bottle Poured into my lost abbey stemware glass

Very nice colour, deep golden, light amber with a huge three finger head on top, white in colour, thick and creamy. Very good retention after losing its 2/3 of height. Average activity in the glass.
Light aroma of dark fruits and yeast , cinnamon
Taste is quite sweet and fruity, mostly dark fruits, plums, cinnamon ,some raisins too, with a slighty metalic aftertaste.
Medium body and high carbonation. Quite dry on the palate. Alcohol very well hidden. A good all day beer
